Eagles Super Bowl – EaglesFanCast 234

The Philadelphia Eagles are in the Super Bowl!

The Eagles hosted the NFC Championship at the Linc in Philly and destroyed the Minnesota Vikings 38-7.

The Eagles are in the Super Bowl!!

After the Vikings drove down the field and scored a touchdown, the Eagles didn’t back down. The Offense clicked. The Defense clicked. The Vikings were completely shut down the remaining 55 minutes of the game, and the Eagles went on to score 38 unanswered points in what became a blowout win.

The Eagles are in the Super Bowl!!!

The fans were so loud in the stadium. In the fourth quarter of the game, it became a party atmosphere as the realization came that the shoe would not drop, and the Eagles luck would run out. We were going to win the NFC Championship, we were going to beat the Minnesota Vikings, and our Eagles, who fought so hard, maintained their composure and class and “next man up” attitude for the entire season, were going to the big game on an international stage.

THE EAGLES ARE IN THE SUPER BOWL!!!

Divisional Playoff Game Underdogs – EaglesFanCast 232

Here we go, the playoffs. Home game. The Atlanta Falcons. The Eagles fans will be ready in Lincoln Financial Field.

The Eagles are the underdogs?

Yes, yes they are. For the first time in recent memory, the number one seed in the NFC, playing at home, are the underdogs.

This underlines the fact that no other team, right now, respects the Eagles, or what they have done this season. The rest of the league now believes that the Eagles were no more than our injured quarterback Carson Wentz.

They forget that the Eagles Defense was 4th in the league in total yards per game, 1st in the league in total yards per game, and the takeaway ratio is near the top.

Our Offense? Third in the league in rushing yards per game, and still 13th in the league in passing despite Carson going down. Total Offense yards per game? Seventh. This team is solid.

There are three factors in this game: 1. Nick Foles, which Nick shows up? 2. Offensive line protection for Foles. 3. A Defensive attack that stops the run and harasses Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

Either way, we want to see a good game, a fun game.

Bittersweet NFC East Champs – EaglesFanCast 228

Talk about an up and down Sunday of football. The Philadelphia Eagles enter their second road game on the west coast after losing the previous week to the Seattle Seahawks. The Los Angeles Rams, helmed by quarterback Jared Goff had a 9-3 record and poised for their run at the playoffs, with a lot to play for. Play they did, and so did the Eagles in a brawl of a football game, with ultimately the Eagles besting the Rams 43-35, and clinching the NFC East.

A time for celebration!

But wait, there’s more!

Unfortunately among the celebration was the realization that potential MVP quarterback Carson Wentz tore his ACL in his left knee. Lost for the season, and well over half of the 2018 calendar year.

Gut punch. Kick in the gonads. A full-on stomach flu feel for Eagles fans the world over.

So now the Eagles have backup quarterback Nick Foles taking the team forward from here on out this season. Nick Foles led the Eagles previously, and had much success. He now has more weapons than he had before.

The Eagles are 11-2, and have the hapless New York Giants this Sunday. Now the Eagles are playing for the #1 seed in the NFC for the playoffs.

We said at the beginning of this season that if the Eagles did not make the playoffs, we would consider this season a failure. They met that goal. The rest is fun. We should not be down, we have an amazing team, are 11 and freaking 2, and have seen some great football so far. This ride is not finished yet. Hang on, it may be bumpy though.

More Dominance – EaglesFanCast 226

The Philadelphia Eagles are back home for a week and host the Chicago Bears at Lincoln Financial Field. It didn’t go well for the Bears, as the Eagles dismantled every part of the Bears Defense and Offense, winning 31-3.

What else can be said at this point with the 10-1 Eagles? They are playing at a very high level, but not looking, at all, like they playing above themselves as either a team, or individual players. Each player that subs in during the game is simply another threat the other defense has to worry about.

And speaking of Defense, the Eagles version of it is ridiculous. They have upended Offensive Lines, quarterbacks, the run game and harassed receivers week after week. The Bears had six, SIX, rushing yards.

Next is the first of two big tests for the Eagles. They go out west and take on a very tough Seattle Seahawks. The week after, they travel down the west coast and meet up with the Los Angeles Rams. These are two high-powered teams, led by very good quarterbacks. This test comes at the perfect time in the season, where the Eagles can prove complete dominance of the league, or as a catalyst for the rest of the season to correct any outstanding negatives that are hiding in the team.

Either way, the Eagles “magic number” is one. If the Dallas Cowboys lose on Thursday, or the Eagles beat the Seahawks on Sunday, the NFC East belongs to the midnight green and silver.

These are good times, let’s enjoy every minute of this Autumn.

Crushing the Cowboys – EaglesFanCast 225

Philadelphia Eagles versus the Dallas Cowboys. An NFC East division rivalry. The Eagles on the road after a BYE week in very hostile territory, against a desperate Cowboys team with the need to prove something to the Eagles, and the NFL. On paper, the Eagles had the advantage.

The Eagles come out in the first half rusty, with Carson Wentz showing some inaccuracies in passing, a few dropped passes that looked like easy grabs, and after scoring on a drive composed mostly of running plays, the run game seemed to be shelved after that drive.

Going into the half, the Cowboys led the Eagles 9-7. The second half might be a slugfest and classic NFC East showdown.

It was a slugfest. But all of the slugging was done by the Eagles, where they scored 30 unanswered points, blowing out the home team, and practically cementing the NFC East outcome.

This week the Eagles come back to a very excited and raucous crowd in Philly, hosting the Chicago Bears. Each week is another step, and the Eagles get one step closer with another win against the Bears.
